Detroit Mercy Dental Clinical Staff Assistant Kathy Metzger received this year’s School of Dentistry ACE Award. Colleagues describe Metzger as someone who “cares deeply for patients, doing her best to assure that they have the best treatment and a positive experience,” and “has very high standards for patient care.” The ACE Award program recognizes School of Dentistry staff members who consistently demonstrate commitment to the University values and standards of service, and is designed to acknowledge the exceptional employee, not merely the employee who consistently meets the expectations of their job responsibilities.
